7:00 a.m. and eastern time. now to the brookings institution, a panel on negotiating with iran. [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2013] >> good morning. i'm a senior fellow here at the brookings center, 21st century security and intelligence. it's my pleasure to moderate today's panel discussion on dealing with iran and the iranians. western concerns about iran's nuclear ambitions go about two decades back. although iran claims the right under nonproliferation treaty to civil nuclear activities and nuclear technologies, including enrichment for non-weapons purposes, there are concerns about the where it is going. ts continued actions in enrichment contravene un security council resolutions, which have called for iran to suspend these activities. iran's actions over the last 15 years promote questions on how far it wants to go in the nuclear field. this includes it did not disclose its investment centers until they were revealed by others. it has an indictment program that appears to be inconsistent with a
. welcome to this important event. north korea notwithstanding preventing iran from becoming a nuclear weapons state remains most significant immediate foreign-policy challenge of president barack obama second term. knowing the stakes and the perils of this sometime ago, more than two years ago the atlantic council launched an arent task force and we recently asked candidate in an effort to move america and its allies from a stand for something that's been overwhelmingly tacked six to something a little more strategic, taking a look of the broader context of the region, taken a look at iran's domestic politics, taking a look of abstract perspective lost in the heat of the arguments over iran would been trying to provide more light. i want to thank at the outset of the atlantic council board member, stuart eisenstadt, who has served as cochair of the task force throughout and initially as cochair of senator chuck hagel, our chairman who has left to become secretary of defense as you know was not involved in the vetting or approval of this final report, but the report does apply what we'

[inaudible conversations] >> good morning. i'm fred kempe, president and ceo of the atlantic council. welcome to this important event. north korea, not withstanding, preventing iran from becoming a nuclear weapons state remains the most significant to be as -- of president barack obama second term. knowing the stakes and the perils of this some time ago, actually now more than two
worrying about how iran's negotiators will sell a negotiated agreement in tehran, not just how it will go over in the u.s. congress. now for the footnote i promised. the military option section includes a thorough list on the one hand great implications for nuclear iran, and on the other hand the dire consequences for a premature military strike on the other. i'm sure i join everyone in our audience today in wishing for neither rather than either. but i personally think the consequences of a nuclear iran are somewhat overdrawn and the description of consequences a little tutorial. why would an iranian success violate u.n. security council resolution shred when north korean relations have not? why should we believe an iranian bomb would threaten the very existence of israel when barack does not. moreover, i'm not sure what it means to quote ensure that the option military strikes remain credible and go. given the ramifications of an attack that would delay but not even prevent an iranian bomb, i doubt that the u.s. hitting first with unilateral prevent an attack can ever be very credible.
they have done -- chuck hagel for the work they have done. the task force has been delving deeply into iran. we have looked at the nuclear program, quality of intelligence about the program, the impact of sanctions, the regional role, and their internal politics. our task force has taken the most comprehensive assessment of 21st century iran ever undertaken. outside of government. we have posted 25 separate events. we have had experts briefed us on a whole range of iranian policy and on the people of iran. we have had six significant issue briefs as well. the report summarizes many of the findings and recommendations and recommend a course of action to curb the nuclear program yet bolster our relationship in a strategic way. on the nuclear issue we start with a proposition that this task force found it, a nuclear arms iran would have negative impact on the united states, at the european allies, it is real, and the international system. it would mark a defeat for the west. the obama administration is recommended to lay out a step- by-step reciprocal and proportional plan, trading graduated r

thing that has not been reported. the influence of iran here. after 1979, khomeini came to north korea and brokered a deal with north korea. ever sips that time, pakistan has been trying to build up each other's nuclear alliances as a win/win situation. we can't look at this in a vacuum, just north korea. they are very much tied part and parse welwhat is going on in iran. and iran is watching how the united states handle this is situation. so we have to be very, very -- i think very strong in what we do. >> eric: iran is violating the u.n. security council mandates on the uranium enrichments. so really, are they operating on parallel paths in the sense that maybe north korea's seeing what will come first? and iran taking lessons on what they will do with their nuclear program? >> i think that's my judgment. iran is funding north korean's operations here. they are using north korea as a test to see how the united states will react. the more we try to negotiate and say, if you will stop what you are doing, we will throw more money at you, which is what they have done in the past, that's

on the korean peninsula. there were talks on iran this last week that don't seem to produce any new results. and, of course, there's increasingly prognostication from "the wall street journal" about living proliferation, which if you haven't seen their section from this morning i encourage you to do so. some of you might look at the agenda and wonder where are these topics, the usual hotspots, why aren't there any pants on these? or conversely, why are we talk much you managing dimensions of nuclear weapons or emerging powers? on the former as we thought about the substance of this conference, we assumed that these issues will be ever present in the conversation. it will be raised in several of the sessions on regime change, on sanction and on the balance between nonproliferation and disarmament, for instance. and on the latter point, we think this conference provides an opportunity to focus not just on issues that are in the headlines, but those that will be of increasing importance and shape how we perceive and analyze these issues in years to come. we think it's worth the time to spend and di
